INFINEON AND RAMBUS SETTLE: Technology licensing company Rambus Inc. is announcing that it settled a patent dispute with Infineon Technologies AG and entered into a licensing deal with the German chipmaker.

Under the licensing deal, Infineon will pay Rambus $5.9 million each quarter starting in November and continuing through 2007. After 2007, Infineon may make additional payments up to $100 million, but only if Los Altos, Calif.-based Rambus enters into certain licensing agreements with other computer memory manufacturers. Infineon also has the option of acquiring other Rambus licenses under a "most-favored customer" status.

Munich-based Infineon granted to Rambus a fully paid perpetual license for memory interfaces. The companies said they agreed to dismiss all pending litigation and have released each other from all existing legal claims.
